The line between fashion and politics has become more blurred over the years. In 2016, Maria Grazia Chiuri became the first female artistic director at Dior , and her debut collection centered on female empowerment for this historic moment at the storied fashion house. In celebration, she designed a T-shirt that said, “We Should All Be Feminists.” In 2017, shortly after the U.S. presidential election the previous November, designers continued to showcase their political stances through fashion. During designer Prabal Gurung ’s Fall 2017 show, he had models Bella Hadid and Candice Huffine walk down the runway wearing shirts that read, “The Future Is Female,” “Our Minds Our Bodies Our Power,” and “Nevertheless, She Persisted.” Celebrity favorite designer Tom Ford , known for his glitzy old Hollywood designs, debuted a chain handbag on his catwalk that said “Pussy Power,” alluding to the pink pussy hats worn during the Women’s March in January 2017. Political statements have also reached far outside the traditional “big four” fashion weeks (New York, London, Milan, and Paris). During Seoul Fashion Week in March earlier this year, Miss Gee Collection debuted two sweaters emblazoned with the words “#MeToo” and “Speak Up” in bold crimson letters in reference to the #MeToo movement that has swept around the globe. This season is no different. New York Fashion Week designers continue to use their catwalk shows to take political stands. Above, we present the political statements made at fashion week so far.

Creative director Jeremy Scott is known for wild collections at powerhouse brand Moschino, but this season, he's relying on another brand for a sales boost: My Little Pony.
The appearance was a big one for Richie's fashion week modeling career, as Scott's show has always included a star-studded modeling cast, and this year proved to be no different.
Kendall Jenner walks the Moschino Fall/Winter 2017 show in Milan on Feb. 23. Carrie Bradshaw had put a bird on her head, but Kendall Jenner just beat her: She opened the Moschino show wearing a UPS crate as a hat.
For its latest offering, the label played off a “Valley of the Dolls” theme and the term “capsule collection” with pieces inspired by prescription drugs.
Jeremy Scott is generally considered to be the most fun show of New York Fashion Week, and this season was no exception. For Spring 2017, Scott is majorly feeling the ′80s New Wave — and now so are we! Click on for everything you need to know to feel like you were sitting front row.

French activist and writer Simone de Beauvoir said, “You are not born woman. You become one.” Well, those are the words Caitlyn Jenner lives by. For the 66-year-old, the past six months have been some of the most monumental in her life: she transitioned in the public eye, posed on the cover of Vanity Fair in lingerie, became an activist, and completely reinvented herself from Olympian and reality star Bruce Jenner to the woman who got up onstage in a fancy updo and custom off-the-shoulder Jeremy Scott gown at Monday night’s Glamour Women of the Year Awards.

“Bitch I’m Madonna” Is a Standard Moschino Rave Warning: Explicit content above. It’s here! After Madge’s cryptic social media announcement about the release of her “Bitch I’m Madonna” music video, the much-anticipated project is officially on the interwebs (or Tidal, to be precise). Although different from her sexy matador “Living for Love,” it’s not a far cry from her sartorial choices IRL…because it’s practically a Jeremy Scott for Moschino fashion show in cinematic form. In line with the rave-like setting (filmed at the oh-so-trendy Standard Hotel in New York City), she’s dressed in a tight cheetah print dress and bright pink leather jacket completely covered with gold studs. The Queen of Pop has been teasing us all with Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, and Rita Ora cameos on her social media — and what a tease it was! For one, the roster of cameos far surpassed the six singers.
Photo: Moschino is one of the most anticipated shows every season. Sure, the clothes aren’t for everyone, but thanks to creative director Jeremy Scott it is a Show (with a capital S)! And after the long hours of running from show to show and appointments, the truth is everyone just wants to have fun. Primary colors, gold chains, graffiti gowns, Looney Tunes characters, oh my! Here’s a look at the coolest pieces that went down the runway today. It was not surprising at all when Jeremy Scott told us at his after party that his favorite song from this era is “Ain’t 2 Proud 2 Beg,” the band’s first single.
Photo: Moschino You may not know designer Jeremy Scott by name, but you’ve undoubtedly seen his work. Rihanna has worn his pop-inspired clothing on tour, Kelly Osbourne rocked his Flintstones-esque frock, and Miley Cyrus is a huge fan of his new candy raver collection (she even collaborated on the accompanying jewelry). As someone who loves to test the limits of fashion, he made his mark by bringing kitsch to masses through his winged Adidas sneakers and heavily knocked off Simpsons sweaters, and as the creative director for Moschino he’s recently sent McDonalds happy meal handbags and human-sized Barbie clothes down the runway.

That’s what designer Jeremy Scott did for his second Moschino collection, shown in Milan yesterday.
